Ask yourself this question; When you hear the words Mental Health what comes to mind? Many people will say words like fear, depression, crazy, sick, etc. These words are often presented with negative connotations. The Healing Place, Inc., the Non-Profit arm of Just A Journey Counseling & Psychological Services, LLC, strives to break the stigma of Mental Illness by raising awareness and an understanding that there is NO health without Mental Health!
Through our community based programs we provide convenient and effective individual, family and group behavioral health services to those who are often overlooked and or under-serviced in our communities. By donating to this campaign you will be partnering with us in the fight to break the stigma of Mental Illness. It is our goal that through these efforts, when asked "what words come to mind when you hear the words Mental Health" in the future, people will say "Hope, Healing, Peace, & Recovery!"
